Welcome to my little corner in cyberspace. This is where I get to share my love of Rubber Stamping, Cardmaking and bits and pieces of other Craftiness. Grab a cuppa, make yourself comfortable and enjoy the read. I would be delighted if you joined as a Follower. Thanks so much for popping by.
I said I'd be back with some more Baby cards and this one is special. I don't have those fancy machines to cut out images, etc. I only have my little Cuttlebug. I was getting a bit bored with what I have and after viewing some baby cards on Pinterest for inspiration, I decided I would like a little jumper suit. I just drew one on a thicker than normal piece of cardstock (see below), as this would become my "pattern".
I then simply outlined my pattern onto different coloured patterned paper and cut it out.
Easy peasy huh!
And here are my creations using this new, neat technique...
I hope this post has inspired you to try something different too. Thanks so much for popping by.
It is going to be another hot day in Cape Town, so I've closed the blinds and am tucked away in my craft room as I am keen to continue making more Baby cards, which I had started with yesterday.
I needed to make a birthday card for a male family member and this is what I have created. Don't you find it ANNOYING when you can't find a big enough piece of coloured cardstock, which you want to use to frame your image, that actually matches your patterned paper just perfectly !!! This happened to me this morning. So I delved into my little box of off-cuts and managed to find 3 pieces of the coloured cardstock I needed. I glued them all together, which gave me the size I wanted. See pic below.
See... the patchwork pieces fit my image just perfectly!
Now I could complete my card. :)
Thanks for popping by to see what I have created. The stamp is from a local company, Great Impressions, Number J653. I added the birds with a felt-tipped pen for added effect.
I'll be back later with some more creations, so watch this space !
It has been a hugely productive day for me today... I managed to create 14 Baby cards today...woohoo!!!
Here are some more pics I'd like to share with you. I've really had such FUN making these, as I've hauled out a few Martha Stewart punches for this product, which has been collecting dust (*blush*) on my shelves. Not to mention the lovely Sentiments, Card Candy and Buttons too.... I could go on and on and on... You catch my drift, don't you ?!?!?
I also managed to do some "light" housework and cooked something simple for supper. Now I feel bushed!
Thanks for popping by to see what I have created and if you'd like to leave a comment, that would be awesome.
We had a long weekend this past weekend. Hope you all had a good one. The shops are full and I have decided I will not go to the Malls again. Whatever I run out of, I'll just get from my local Checkers or Spar ! This fighting to find a parking bay just peeves me off to start with. In any event, it was my first day out after my op and when I came home I felt the brunt of it. Had to take painkillers to alleviate the pain I was feeling in my abdomen. So... I am quite happy just to chill at home and continue following my doctor's orders :)
Here are a few cards I am making for a charitable cause. More details concerning this drive can be found on my other blog, The Cape Town Card Fairy. Please consider becoming a follower of that blog if you are not one already. Blogger appears to be doing maintenance work, so the followers are not visible right now, but do go back will you :)
As I'll be making quite a large amount of cards, I've had to design a clean and simple look. Funny how when you start scratching around, you find craft items you'd completely forgotten about. Here's the little embossed pram which I got when I first bought my Cuttlebug. Have never used it and it is coming in quite handy right now.
Thanks for popping by and all comments are appreciated.
It is 5.20am and it is so hot that I just couldn't sleep anymore. So here I am typing this post and sharing some of the greeting cards I made yesterday. I'll be making some more later, to add to my depleted stash!
As some of you may know, I am at home recuperating after a major op. I am doing well, but just need to listen to the doctor's orders and not lift anything heavy, nor drive, nor stretch, etc. All is well and she is happy with my progress so far. Thanks for all the good wishes, flowers, etc. I really appreciate it!
We are experiencing major hot days in Cape Town. I thought I was going to melt yesterday...lol My Mom requested that I make a card for her for an Aunt of mine and I decided to choose LOTV's Sunflower blooms from their pre-coloured Wild Flower Art Pad. I am so happy with it and am sure it will add a lot of sunshine to her day.
Thanks for popping by. I've been reading that some of you have already done your Christmas shopping. Well done! Sadly, I still need to do mine.
